Name: Reid Harrison-Ducros
School:  Duquesne
Position: CB/Nickel
Height:  5’10″
Weight: 185

Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

Personally, my goals going into the season were to: 1. Create more turnovers, 2. Completely shut down every WR I faced, 3. Don’t give up any touchdowns, 4. Help develop the young CB talent. Looking back on the season now, I feel like I accomplished my goals that I set. In regards to the team, I went into the season with the goal of winning an NEC championship and going further in the playoffs than last year. Unfortunately, we didn’t get that done though.

Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?

They would say that I’m a driven, selfless leader, who comes ready to grind everyday.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

There are a lot of things that I focus on when I watch film. Specifically I look for tendencies, splits the WR has on certain routes, what formations leads to which plays, to even how the WR lines up when it’s a passing play or not. I also look at my performance after each game to identify ways to better my technique. I learned a long time ago that perfecting the little things leads to outstanding performance on the field.

Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?

Multiple items separate me from other prospects. First, my knowledge and technique. I maniacally train and study film under Clay Mack, who trains multiple NFL DBs, Larry Brown, Super Bowl 30 MVP, Donald Driver, Kevin Mathis, Jay Valai, and other successful ex NFL and college players. Second, I am blessed with elite quickness that I am able to pair with my technique to frustrate receiver routes. Third, I started at WR in high school so I have outstanding hands.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

I will train at Michael Johnson Performance (MJP) to increase my speed, strength and agility. I will train with Clay Mack to perfect my CB technique. For professional opportunities I’m going to play in the College Gridiron Showcase and remain hopeful of receiving an NFL Combine invite as well as gaining other bowl invitations.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

To have the ability to have a career in playing football is my dream and I won’t let anything mess that up. So every decision I make off the field, I make sure that it won’t jeopardize my football career. I was elected team captain in both high school and college. As for on the field, I will be super prepared, supportive of others, and continue to be driven beyond belief to win.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?

I will do anything for the team when needed. I’m hungry. I will always be a high character role model. I aim to win every play, rep, and film study session. I will always work to get better.
